When Skydio announced the R2 and began making the first round of deliveries, lots of drone flyers and YouTubers were thrilled to see a competitor to DJI make an affordable, high quality drone worthy of challenging the Chinese drone giant.
Skydio, an American company, is advertising the R2 as one of the safest drones on the market. The R2 carries a plethora of sensors and cameras detecting nearby objects making it extremely difficult to deliberately crash.
While the Skydio R2 has 4k video capabilities, it’s still images are limited to 12MP, making it comparable to the Mavic Air but lacking against the Mavic Pro 2’s 21MP camera.
